AgroRemed - Case studies and testimonials

AgroRemed is effective in cleanup of petroleum contaminated soils in short periods of time, typically reducing the TPH content by more than 90% within 3 weeks under favorable conditions. It is essential that the soil is moist for survival of the oil-eating bacteria present in AgroRemed. Under drought conditions this can be achieved by wetting the soil with water free from chlorine. and covering it with straw to prevent both evaporation and maintain favorable temperature in the soil. Importantly, AgroRemed has been found to help restore soil to near pre-spill condition.

The project initiated in 2005 was treated with AgroRemed resulted in the recovery of 140 gallons of free product mobilized through bacterial action and after a final application of AgroRemed in 2007 was closed by the VA DEQ based on the analysis report of 22nd April, 2008.

Two case studies are presented in this paper, one study demonstrating revitalization of roadside vegetation through bioremediation after a spill of motor oil and in another case application of AgroRemed to sites affected by diesel spill with underlying utility cables. The TPH of the soil after bioremediation was reduced by more than 95% from 65,000 ppm in the first case while in the second case, the TPH was found to be below the detectable values from the initial value of 47,000 ppm. Both AgroRemed and VaporRemed are available in a ready to use liquid form and have been known to effectively bioremediate the contaminated soils and fumes in a very short period of time. AgroRemed helps restore the nutritive status of soil to facilitate growth of vegetation with minimum disturbance to ecosystem.

Bioremediation of soils impacted with gasoline range organics with injection of AgroRemed. A Corrective Action Plan (CAP) was implemented, which was conducted in two phases. 1. Remediation of petroleum saturated soil with AgroRemed and 2. Monitoring and recovery of free product in the groundwater. In March, 2012, AgroRemed was injected in the two sites showing values of TPH above saturation point. At the next sampling event in June, the samples of soil from these two sites showed below detect values of TPH. The soil end point as per CAP was met in June, 2012 after single application of AgroRemed. However, the monitoring and recovery of free product trapped in the vadose zone was continued. The three quarterly sampling events of groundwater did not show any free product water and VA DEQ was requested to issue a closure of the CAP in August, 2014.

At a train station Smedjebacken in Sweden, the track was contaminated with a thick layer of oil and grease accumulated over a period of 80 years. Analysis of soil samples showed heavy contamination at a depth ranging from 70 cms to 1 meter or 3 feet. AgroRemed was sprayed over an area of 450 square meters for on-site bioremediation of the chemicals of concern. 4 weeks after application of AgroRemed, samples were drawn from 2 feet below the surface and were sent for analyses. The results showed that all the chemicals of concern were below permitted levels. 55 gallon of AgroRemed was applied only once and the train services were interrupted for only 2 hours during this period.

Based on our review of all reports, the DEQ believes petroleum contamination levels at this site do not warrant further assessment or corrective action. Should environmental problems develop in the future which the DEQ determines are related to this release, additional investigation and corrective action may be required in accordance with the applicable State and Federal regulations. All monitoring wells installed in accordance with this investigation should be properly abandoned to preclude the possibility of surficial contamination reaching ground water via these conduits.
